Maurits gliding with Rene with the DG1000S PH-1432
On Sunday, 5 May 2014, Maurits took Rene on a glider flight.
The minimum age for a Glider Pilot License is sixteen, and Maurits passed immediately when the glider club started their season in March after Maurits turned sixteen.
The Aerotow plane brought us up, and we flew for about 45 minutes.
